The Rotary Club of King’s Lynn has, over the past 20 years, continually kept itself aware of the on-going needs of the Magpie Centre, which provides such an important service to disabled youngsters and adults alike. Their latest fundraising exploits, which totalled £3,500, allowed the Riding for the Disabled Magpie Centre to invest in a new pony.

The new pony named “Buddy” cost £1500, vets bills cost £200, new riding helmets cost £800 and a years keep of the pony is estimated to cost £1000. Buddy is a 14.1 hand bay pony with a white flash down his face and is extremely gentle and friendly – most important qualities where disabled people are concerned.
